Things you do not want to hear from your kid

Sophie: "I just did something only an anteater would do"
Mom: "What did you do Sophie?"
Sophie: "I just ate an ant"
Mom: "How did that happen?"
Sophie: "I was trying to see how close I could put my tongue near the ant, but it ended up on my tongue, so I ate it."
Mom: "Hmmm. Did it taste good?"
Sophie: "No! It tasted worse than sour!"
Mom: "Sophie, please refrain from eating any more ants."
Sophie: "Okay mom."


  1. That is such a great picture of Sophie! Where were these ants that she was eating? If an ant happened to end up on my tongue, I don't think eating it would be my first instinct. She's got quite the personality.

  2. I love that story. Honestly, I can just picture it all happening. I want to know where an ant is in Minnesota this time of year. Crazy! You really should be a story teller. Write your own book. Have you ever thought of it?

  3. yummy. I think I ate a cockroach one (sudder, shudder) if it makes you feel any better.

  4. hysterical! and i agree, great picture to go with the story.

  5. That is a hilarious story! Atleast now I know what not to have for dinner...
